Martin,

"Ridge" IMO closest means "Kamm" in German.

eg. "Nordkette" north of Innsbruck
http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inntalkette (German)

- we should distinguish this from -

a whole mountain range ("das Gebirge" in German)

eg.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steinernes_Meer
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tennengebirge
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Berchtesgaden_Alps
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kitzb%C3%BChel_Alps
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dolomites
...

or even bigger ("Gebirgszug" or "Gebirgszugsystem"):
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Northern_Limestone_Alps
(other mountain ranges are named there)

=>

natural=ridge  (Gebirgskamm) (mapped as a way)
vs
natural=range or mountain_range (Gebirge or Gebirgszug) (mapped as an area)
